I’m so excited to be partnering with Net-a-porter to deliver this exclusive shoe collection to the Cult Gaia woman. Every detail is intentional, and the goal was to strike a balance between a wearable, timeless pieces that also offers a standout moment.

Iconic shoe brand Jimmy Choo has unveiled its pre-fall 2016 collection and campaign. Photographed by Cass Bird and styled by Sarah M. Richardson, model Nadja Bender flaunts her legs in a range of styles. From the metallic gold ‘Dierdre’ booties to the strappy ‘Lance’ sandals, the pre-fall shoes are sexy and elegant.
For this collection I wanted to explore the relationship between personality and style. Iinspired by the iconic look of style-makers such as Edie Sedgwick, the collection embraces a spirited, daring attitude.

Tory Burch’s new flagship store in Paris walks a delicate line between classic French style and the New York brand’s distinctive blend of quasi-oriental Upper East Side gloss.
The 4,200 sq ft shopping paradise in the Rue Saint-Honoré, which opened earlier this month, is located in a 19th century building and was designed in collaboration with architect Daniel Romualdez.
Set out as a series of salon style rooms over three floors joined by a classical staircase, the aim of the flagship is to introduce the millions of international visitor to Paris to the Tory Burch brand. Some rooms speaks the interior language of Paris with the chintz prints reminiscent of the traditional wallpapered guest rooms in some of the cosy hotels in St Germain. Burch was also apparently influenced by the 1920s French interior designer Madeleine Castaing, saying that her work had particularly influenced the colour choices throughout.
This interior is in tune with both its location and its origin. Key materials include intarsia marble flooring, white oak walls and a large dose of the brand’s traditional lacquered finish. The main floor showcases the accessories business whilst upstairs there are rooms for ready-to-wear, homewares, watches, jewellery, eyewear, and footwear. On the fifth floor there is a VIP salon with the feel of an intimate drawing room.
